Originally founded as “Debbie’s Campaign,” Free From Abuse is a national non-profit project aimed at bringing public attention and real change to the issues documented in the film “Crime After Crime.” The project intends to fulfill Debbie’s vision that her story be told in order to help others. Funds raised by Free From Abuse will go towards:
Free From Abuse is a project of Headfirst Arts & Media, a nonprofit organization with 501(c)3 tax-exempt status (tax ID 46-2843898). Free From Abuse is supported through grants, donations, and a percentage of CRIME AFTER CRIME film profits.
Free From Abuse also encourages you to directly support The Habeas Project, a coalition of organizations that works to free incarcerated survivors of domestic violence from prison.
